Bryan Park Update

There will be a little hangover this week at Bryan Park as we slip back to our regular races, but thanks to Stratton for putting on another great Workingman's.
A few notes for this week.

1) No kids race, that will resume next week
2) There are folks that want to race the B then the A. This is a training series so I want people to get the experience, but field size and experience of the rider is a must to make this move so from now on if you are in the top 3 in the B series of finish in the top three that night you may ride the A. If not, race harder next week.
3) Honoring a request, there will be a Women's only points jersey (and it's ugly). Here is the catch though. Points are only awarded if there are at least 3 women in the B race. So come on ladies and line up in the B, go toe to toe with guys and gals and we will score out the women separately. The B fields are much larger than any VA womens only race so it will make your racing and bike handling skills that much better, plus you can show up all your friends with your lovely new points jersey.

See you Tuesday

PSA from Altius Cycling

It may be time to re-stan's your mountain bike tires. Just sayin'... keep it in mind. Last 24 hours 3 Altius riders noticed dry-tubeless tires. Must have something to do with the summer solstice.

June 16th Bryan Park

Another fun race, thanks to those who came out.
In the B race Joel Miller and Dominik Meier took off early and rode away from the field. The gap between first and second for the Bozo Jersey is pretty tight and word has it that CJ may miss the next couple of races which could change everything. Dominik, word on the street says that you need to stay in the A race.

B points
CJ Congrove 50
Oliver Dujua 44
Joel Miller 27
Justin Brown 22
Bruce Lowekamp 20
Michael Yengling 17
Jonathan Pham 15
Ethan Lindbloom 15
Dominik Meier 15
Hugh Brown 10
Joseph Obrien-Applegate 9
Brandon Smith 9
Christian Sheridan 8
Andrew Roberts 8
Ed Baumgartner 6
Braden Govani 6
Kieran Mcloughlin 6

In the A race numerous breaks tried to get away only to get pulled back. I raced my first crit in 8 months thanks to Ann Hardy officiating - thanks Ann, and glad I didn't crash anyone. In the end Craig Dodson shot the gap and narrowly beat tuxedo wearing Dan King for the win. Unlike the B race, Dan is coming out hard early. He may have this one sewn up by August.

A points
Dan King 60
Jeff Buckles 29
Mason Haymes 25

Embrace technology

Sometimes I am a little slow to figure out the right way to get a message out. I realized that a blog site is just as useful for getting info about the team out as a website and a heck of a lot easier. For the bits of the Altius Cycing Team that are important to the world, we now have the forum.
